Smithsonian DisplayEdit

Based in part on a suggestion by Gene Roddenberry, an early, pre-publication, version of these deck plans were donated to the Smithsonian Institution by Franz Joseph in April of 1974. They were displayed along with the 14-foot original model of the USS Enterprise in the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum later that summer. Mounted behind Plexiglas on a wall underneath the ship, visitors to the "Life in the Universe" display were encouraged to fill out a form indicating whether they would want to see these and similar works published (a publishing deal not having yet been worked out.)

BackgroundEdit

While these plans might now be considered non-canonical, they were used as a source and reference for the first three Star Trek movies. Excerpts from them were used as on screen displays in Star Trek: The Motion Picture when V'Ger was reading the Enterprise's on-board database.
